The employee had received texts from AT&T before, specifically regarding approaching limits on high-speed data usage. However, those texts began with “AT&T Free Msg,” not with “ATT Free Msg,” and were from a different number. You know where this is going.

Clicking “Show Details” provided further explanation for the warning:
